Correa was a practicing Seventh-day Adventist and as such would not pitch in any game from sundown Friday till sundown Saturday. The Rangers were able to work around this disruption to their five-man pitching staff due to Charlie Hough's ability to pitch often on short rest. In 1987 Correa injured his arm and never pitched in the majors again.

Correa managed the Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico PONY Baseball team that won the 2007 World Series in Washington, Pennsylvania. His team played against seven other teams to win the title.

Correa founded the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy and High School, a secondary school that also offers intensive baseball training in addition to its academic program.
